Default Jato Big Block Project lots of pics

Building a Jato and Planning on bumpstarting it with a .21 o.s. v-spec. going to be used for on-road only

Today went well, bought the new era big block kit from my LHS and went to work, accompanied the kit with a Tony's screws set due to having multiple stripped screws when i got the jato. Also bought nice fancy exo-c/f side mud guards. Went to work on the dissasembly and was real easy. When time came to take apart the rear i noticed oil everywhere, so i took apart the rear diff to find a broken seal and no diff oil. So another trip to the LHS and bought the rear driveshaft kit, which came with all the seals i needed. Finished up the install and did not have a motor to put in, since my v-spec is out getting worked on. So i had a mach 427 without the p/s (getting pinched at rayaracing) so i put it in as a test fit, the back plate for the rotor start did not fit and if that were the motor i was using i would need to modify the chassis, i plan on bump starting the motor so this is no problems, just put in the motor as a look to what it will be like, i'll also have to get the entire clutch assembly and trim the body to fit the v-spec when i get it, heres tons of pics.

got some more work done today, officially fitted the motor into the jato. its a stock v-spec with a freshly pinched p/s so it'll need a break in. 20/40 revo gearing. had to do some modifications for it to work, but it fits nicely now. Ordered a traxxas 2.4 tq link radio system on ebay due to the factory one kind of glitching at around 100 ft. Will need only an exhaust and starter box to be complete. heres the pics. btw the head of the engine is off of a speed v-spec.

i'll probably end up ditching them, depending on how the exhaust fits we'll see.

there going to officially be taken off, set the starter box without them, exhaust would not fit also. btw this is not the exhaust going to be used. its going to be an 1.8 scale on road setup, pipe was rigged to break in the motor only
